    Baltic Restaurants Latvia has not observed personal hygiene requirements at two Sigulda preschools - Food and Veterinary Service

    RIGA, Sept 20 (LETA) - Public catering company Baltic Restaurants Latvia has not observed personal hygiene requirements and did not take the necessary cleaning and disinfection measures at Ievina and Saulite preschools in Sigulda, the Food and Veterinary Service informed LETA.

    The Food and Veterinary Service said that the results of laboratory tests on samples taken from the hands of kitchen staff at Ievina and Saulite had been received on Friday, and the tests had found the presence of Staphylococcus aureus, while tests on samples taken kitchen tables at Saulite and Sigulda Primary School No. 1 found the presence of the E. coli bacteria.

    It means that Baltic Restaurants Latvia, the company that provides catering services at these educational institutions, has not complied with personal hygiene requirements and did not take the necessary cleaning and disinfection measures, said the Food and Veterinary Service.

    The Food and Veterinary Service has also received the results of first laboratory tests carried on samples from the vegetable processing shop of Jelgavas Augli, and no presence of E. coli has been found in the samples. However, tests are not over yet, the service said.

    In total, 34 children and staff members at five Sigulda preschools contracted an intestinal infection in early September. The authorities continue investigation to determine the cause of the infection.

    Earlier this week, the Food and Veterinary Service suspended operations of Jelgavas Augli fruit processing facilities, which supplied fruit to various caterers, including Baltic Restaurants Latvia.

    The State Police on Tuesday started a criminal case on the outbreak of an intestinal infection at Sigulda kindergartens.
